Guys I got this watch but the glass shattered when it fell on hard floor.

Got a quote to get it refixed at £39.99 obviously pointless to do when can buy brand new any suggestions how I can get repaired cheaper?

Cheers
The last Rotary watch I had the back dropped off in my sports bag and it stopped working.
They look nice but are not well made
To add balance to the comments above with my own experience... I've had one of these for four years and have to say it's been excellent, no issues at all. I wear it most days and it still looks great. It's lasted longer than my Tissot PRC200, which developed a fault in the movement. if this watch broke tomorrow, I'd go straight out and buy another - no question.
It looks tacky

Buy a watch repair kit off a well known website; Quite often watches, and watch faces, aren't nearly as hard to fix or replace as you might think.

Rotary has lost its way on quality, I used to love them.

Some of them are still very good. I just had one serviced (free by Rotary) and cannot fault their turnaround.

Note that this particular watch has been this price in Argos for as long as I can remember.

I don't think they actually make the movements now. Just the cases.
Sorry guys didnt see those replies till today. (Had my PC formatted and was logged out of HUKD)

Thanks for the input. I did think about buying a replacement glass from ebay for this exact watch but its about £12. Then I dont even know how to put it in. So just ended up buying another.

Most adults would prefer to wear a watch that looked like a Breitling than a g-shock schoolboy's special.

I was looking at these as I thought "Swiss quality", but then a Q&A on one of the Argos pages said they were now manufactured and assembled in China. So Swiss in name only?

They're still owned by the original Swiss Dreyfuss family who set them up in 1895. However they've been British based for many years and now have their upmarket models made in Switzerland and more popular level stuff (like this one) made in China.
This looks like a Navitimer. Not bad at £50 beans.

put it in the bin
Bought this last year. The second hand stopped working unless the watch last heavily tapped.

£50 to fix. Waste of money.
Great looking dress watch. I bought one on holiday that looks almost identical and I have been afforded lots of compliments. Not sure about the workmanship but nice to stick on with a suit at work or for an occasion! If I need something that functions I use my sports watch!

Why does it cost £50 to repair???

It comes with a "lifetime guarantee"
The guarantee is only valid if you have the watch serviced every 3 years (which probably costs about £50) but as the watch is less than 3 years old according to you, then it's not due yet so should be covered by the guarantee.
